Optimization

  • Lights are rendered fully client-side, no entities, no lag
  • Lights are grouped into their functions before sending to client, reduces rendering costs by about half
  • Light data for each car type is sent only once per new car type, data sent in chunks (wont lag the server)
  • Admin can adjust times of lights auto shut off if the car is left alone
  • Admin can disable headlight option in the menu
  • Each playercan turn off dynamic lights if too laggy
  • Each player can turn off each light layer one by one if too laggy
  • Each player can reduce the size of each light layer+ dynamic light
  • Dynamic lights gets reduced in size and shut off when its far enough
  • Lights do not render if far enough
  • Lights have LOD's, the further out you go, the more light layers will turn off, keeping it not noticeable
  • Each player can turn off lights on their own if too laggy
  • Each player can select lights auto fade out distance
  • Each player can set his tire tracks fade time
  • Each player can set his tire tracks detail
  • Each player can set the draw distance for the effects
  • Each player can set which effects to use

Overall, I have not gotten any complaints about VCMod being too laggy, it is optimized as best as it could be. Some cars have over 2000 total lights on them, no noticeable lag even with several vehicles spawned.
